Thin is in at Samsung. The company’s new 6000, 7000 and 8000 LED backlit series measure a svelte 1.2″ deep. These sets just about disappear when viewed from the side. The top of the line 8000 series, available in both 46†($3199.99) and 55†($3999.99) versions, adds true 240Hz refresh rate to the feature-packed 7000 series. Samsung calls these sets “LED TVs,†but exactly what does that mean?

While Samsung identifies these new, thin sets as “LED TVs†in its ads and on the shipping cartons, and while its website proclaims “a new HDTV technology…,†this is simply not the case.

These sets use conventional LCD (liquid crystal display) technology. White LEDs (light emitting diodes) mounted around the bezel edge, instead of more conventional means of illumination, provide panel backlighting.

There are true LED displays, of course, like Mitsubishi’s Diamond Vision and Panasonic’s Astrovision, used as giant outdoor displays in stadiums and in New York’s Times Square, that utilize up to 30 million red, blue and green LEDs to produce a full-color HD image.

Best Buy piles on, mimicking Samsung’s advertising in its weekly circular, listing these sets as LED HDTVs, while other LCD-based sets are identified as “LCD HDTVs.†In-store shelf tags also identify the televisions as “LED HDTVsâ€....

Maybe we can now play 3D games with two players at 120Hz each, and without splitscreen?

That would look so wacky from an observers viewpoint... but that would be pretty cool.

But how is the response time on that monitor?
120Hz and 20ms + ghosting?

That would be an interesting concept, but this is not the 240Hz panel you seek.

from what ive read and understand from different tv makers the 240hz, the tv somehow supplied additional scene frame that is why the movie is somewhat fluid because of the additional frames

I'll snag the 55" when it is around $1500. So....about 3+ years or so?

with a bit of tweaking I'm sure you could get the nVidia 3D Vision kit to do this. you'd need two pairs of glasses but the basic hardware is already there... except it would be two screens at 60Hz

Ha ha, if they came out with a special version for 240Hz screens you could run four player split-screen at 60Hz each
